all: replace SUBST_SED with the simpler SUBST_VARS

pkglint -Wall -r --only "substitution command" -F

With manual review and indentation fixes since pkglint doesn't get that
part correct in every case.

Log message:
*: Move SUBST_STAGE from post-patch to pre-configure

Performing substitutions during post-patch breaks tools such as mkpatches,
making it very difficult to regenerate correct patches after making changes,
and often leading to substituted string replacements being committed.

Upstream changelog

[Changes 1.2.1]

* Prefer <fcntl.h> over <sys/fcntl.h> (reported by ncopa). (caf)

* Fix overflow in say() when handling a maximum-length client message. (caf)

* Remove WANT_CHAN_NICK_SERV define and include network services commands
  by default. (caf)

* Pass through externally-provided CPPFLAGS (reported by cpet). (caf)

* Don't set the mode on new channels until synched - this speeds up joining
  lots of channels at connect time if one of them is new, and reduces the
  chance of being flooded off the server. (caf)

* Correctly handle channel sync across multi-server. (caf)

* Fixes and improvements for channel logging. (caf)

* Use correct (MODECHAN and MODEUSER) display level for channel and user
  modes. (caf)

* Allow %- status format to handle max-length topics (reported by oxy). (caf)

* Rewrite termcap/terminfo detection logic in configure and include term.h

* Ensure add_socketread() doesn't leak file descriptors. (caf)

* Fix listing bans on local channels (/BANS &channel). (flashback)

* Fix unbanning by number (/UNBAN #channel #number). (caf)

* Improve the list_channels() function. (caf)

* Use socklen_t instead of plain int where available. (flashback)

* Use <termios.h> in preference to <sys/termios.h> where it's \ 
available. (caf)

  dereferences found by Coverity. (flashback)

  by Coverity. (caf)

* Fix longstanding bug with ordering of rfc1459[] array. (caf)

* Fix crash after /SETAR -, reported by riderplus. (caf)

* Remove special handling of 484 numeric, which is no longer needed and
  was buggy (making BitchX think that usermode +G was set). (caf)

* Add /OBITS command, shows obituaries for some BitchX friends. (caf)

* Fix abuses of the RESIZE macro.  Reported by nenolod. (caf)

* Clears up a crash and some build warnings in the acro plugin. (caf)

  stabilised in the ircd world on this. (caf)

* Fixed two cases where the client was incorrectly deciding that a numeric
  originated from a remote server rather than the local server - this caused
  BitchX to falsely report channel desynch and incorrectly hide some
  numerics. (caf)

* Fixed $servernum() scripting function, it was returning the wrong server
  reference in most cases. (caf)

  buggy handling of certain key and limit mode changes. (caf)

  (bad password) that the client wasn't expecting. (caf)

* Add /HOP and /DEHOP commands for halfop. (caf)

* Removed "scan" plugin, this functionality is now covered by /SCAN -stat.

* Change NICKSORT_OP to NICKSORT_STAT (sorts nicks by channel status -
  chanop first, then halops, voices and others).  Added /SCAN -stat
  to sort nicks using NICKSORT_OP.  Removed NICKSORT_VOICE - it was broken
  anyway. (caf)

* Add halfop nick prefix to default status line, and change the voice prefix
  so it appears whether or not you're opped. (caf)

* Add halfop support to $channel() scripting function. (caf)

* Rework /SCAN and /NAMES formatting.  This removes the /FSETs NAMES_BOTCOLOR,
  NAMES_VOICECOLOR and replaces them with new /FSETs. (caf)

  existing function in EPIC. (caf)

* Fix four bugs in the /FE scripting function. (caf)

* Fix incompatibility with 64-bit platforms. (caf)

  (CVE-2007-5839). (caf)
